Michael Phillips, author of The Apple Grower, a Guide for the Organic Orchardist, will be back again for his popular grafting and pruning course. He will bring hearty root stocks and scions from a variety of his own apple trees for the morning workshop. Students are also encouraged to bring in scions from their favorite ancient apple trees. Students will get to make at least two grafted trees to take home. In the afternoon, Michael will demonstrate renewal pruning on the Museum’s apple trees and discuss tree health and supply sources.
